Doppelpaymer ransomware crew fingered for attack on German hospital that caused death of a patient

It still amazes me that doctors and nurses with many years of education and experience just throw up their hands and don't even try to provide aid without computers. Sure they need to check for interactions between medications she might already be using or they may be adding, but was there no way to stabilize this patient somewhat using old-school methods before they sent he on to the next hospital? I'm not in the medical field, but it still seems hard to believe first-line medical personnel are this helpless without their silicon overlords.

Or was it the hospital admins who said no, because they weren't able to ensure they would be paid?
